Closed Until Further Notice: Businesses, and Municipalities

No. Not at this time.

Do staples and paperclips need to be removed?

No appointments needed if less than 2000 lbs. of documents will be destroyed.


Do you provide certificates of destruction?

Can we view the destruction?

WestRock's free confidential document destruction service is a great alternative to traditional paper shredding. Your sensitive documents are immediately destroyed and recycled using a machine called a "Hydrapulper". Once destroyed, the paper fibers are recycled in our paper mill and used in the manufacture of the hard cover portion of text books. 

Do you do on-location shredding or pickup?

Yes. For safety reasons, we provide a remote live video feed.

Documents are pulped down into fibers by our 8000 gallon hydrapulper
